What is a Non-Profit Minutes?

Nonprofits need to let directors know when they take a formal action: this step-by-step Non-Profit Minutes document allows you to summarize your meetings in minutes - rather than hours. 
 
Meeting minutes are an essential part of every nonprofit. Memories are imperfect, and you're obligated to detail your actions in writing so there's no confusion about what happened. But in a busy organization, producing coherent minutes takes up valuable time. The Non-Profit Minutes questionnaire walks you through the critical items you'll need to include. This document allows you to give a short description of the meeting's purpose, what decisions were made - and how. Did you take any votes? Present a report? Adopt a new plan? Elect any officers? Approve financial statements? The Non-Profit Minutes document helps your board secretary keep your minutes organized and complete, so that you can focus on making a difference.

When to use a Non-Profit Minutes:

  • You need to prepare a written summary of the items discussed, and the actions taken at a meeting of shareholders and/or directors of a corporation.
